That is like 5 min from my house too. Would be crazy running into Romo there.
On the other hand it was a way to relieve pressure and did not interfere with any preparation since again all players had those 3 days off which is not uncommon for any team in that situation for the HC to give guys a few days off. Had Romo travel to Wis to visit his mom and dad I doubt anyone would care. In my view where Romo went on his 3 days off has never been an issue for me. Maybe Miles should have gone with him and Witten who knows maybe he runs the correct rout. lol
Thanks! Lots of fond memories. Best memory was riding around in Too Tall's jeep!
LoL @ 10 pages of conjecture based on one picture. Ever been in a picture that made you look fat? I know my SO has, hehe.
Nah......I got 6 packs on my 6 packs
I never bragged about the physical shape I was in. You ignored the deriding comment from the other poster which led me to mention a tidbit about my credentials. If I really wanted to brag, I'd post a pic of my physique but there are far too few female posters on this board for that.
The only person who has said that Romo is a gym rat, is Romo himself. Otherwise, I have heard people compliment him on his film study but never for being a gym rat.
I'm not going to google pics for you but here are some of Big Ben's "piggy" numbers a year before that first Super Bowl. 4.75 in the 40-yard dash...340-pound bench press...410-pound bench press...316-pound power clean...32-inch vertical jump...32 -inch arm length...9 7/8-inch hands.
The team was very flat and the coaching staff told them to all stay away from the facility for a few days and relax. You're right, Cabo is extremely easy to get to from Dallas....really no different than driving two hours to Oklahoma (or getting stuck in 2-3 hours of traffic on your way to Frisco..lol. It was the perception of it all. They could have just as easily been partying by a pool in a Dallas suburb.
But Romo has said that he's learned a lot about public perception since then...I mean that was only his second year as a starter, so he was a bit naïve.
Really same thing when his dad had had cancer earlier and they lost a big playoff game and he made the comment about there are worse things in life. Total morons took that as if he didn't care when he said what 100% of any intelligent person would be thinking given the situation. Believe me, someone like Richard Sherman (loose tongue but also a high IQ) would have said what Romo said if the situation was the same. But for Romo and most people, it's one thing to think it (and know it is of course 100% true) and another to give the dull brain ones low hanging fruit to hate with. Some still cling to that comment. He has said since that he should have kept his mouth shut there.
You gotta tell bro!
Ah, so you just aren't listening. Figures.
I called it. You won't because you can't prove it. Eli has never been ripped and Ben has never been svelte. You failed.
That's not true at all Z.
Parcells said it first and said it often.
Dez, Aikman, Garrett, Witten, Owens, Gurode, Murray, MB3, Dat....and I bet many, many more that I'm not thinking of.
This is the metro age
I wasn't aware that the quote was relating to his father (or timespan wise). It does shed a completely different light on that quote within that context. I didn't particularly fault him for saying it, just the timing in general. But it is understandalbe that he wouldn't use his father's condition as a way to "take back" that comment.
Can you post a quote?
I agree it was more of a case of public perception. For me I don't get into what something looks like I just deal in the facts and fact is going to Cabo for your 3 days off was no big deal no different than as you said having a pool party there in Dallas or doing any number of things. I'm sure most players who get the bye week take some time to enjoy themselves and to relax given the high pressure they are under some may go out and play golf but in my view who really cares. I guess the answer to that are some people but then some people have the enquiring minds what to know syndrome that is why National Enquirer is able to make money. lol
We get it Zordon........Tony wish he was you, and you should be QB/GM/HC of the Dallas Cowboys
In fact, in his first off-season as the Cowboys starting quarterback, Romo, always a football gym rat who Bill Parcells first fell in love with because of his work ethic, has never worked harder.
And when you talk to the Cowboys players this offseason, they gush about their quarterback. Bradie James tells us that you see Romo working longer hours as new offensive coordinator Jason Garrett tries to install a game plan featuring more of a West Coast Offense. And James reveals that the signal caller has looked razor sharp in that new offense.
Marc Colombo says that Romo's confidence and work ethic are contagious. Julius Jones reports that you absolutely see a different Romo in minicamps this year, one who walks and talks and practices with the responsibility and moxie of being the quarterback and leader in Dallas. Marcus Spears says the entire team takes its lead from Romo, and he's the player to lead Dallas back to the Super Bowl.
I've got the feeling we are far from finished. My guess....16 pages.
no use Hoss. Unless you can post a quote(plus link) from a coach or Jerruh Zordon will not believe it.
Dude, at least be consistent with your argument. You basically criticized Romo's physique and work ethic based off one picture and said he looked weak, flabby, blah blah blah.
Then you go on to say you won't post a single picture of Roethlisberger, but here's his combine numbers, when more than half of the people in this thread are already telling you that superior physique doesn't necessarily equate to athletic performance or true strength.
There's so much wrong with this thread, at least the jokes were somewhat amusing.
The link would not work.
